Fly In 2017 was held in Spanish Lookout, Cayo, Belize #Flyin2017#
This past weekend, I travelled to Spanish Lookout to experience the biennial Fly In 2017 at the airstrip. For those of you not familiar with Spanish Lookout it’s a Mennonite settlement located in the Cayo district of Belize. This aviation event was dynamic - featuring astounding aerial shows coupled with the ambiance of the Cayo countryside making it an event not to be missed. Featuring helicopter rides, performances by skydiving teams, aerobatics and for those daring enough, an opportunity (for a fee) to tandem skydive with licensed professionals. Included in the experience was time for RC crafts, pilot competitions, aircrafts to view and the famous Ms Deb’s food Truck with delectable food and snacks. There was no doubt that guests were enthralled! This is definitely an exciting and unique event not to be missed when it comes back to Spanish Lookout in 2018!
The Flight Enthusiasts thanked everyone who came out on support the Fly in 2017Surprisingly, close to 2000 people came out on Sunday March 12th, 2017. A massive thanks to all the ground crew and vendors and parking attendants that kept everyone safe and fed and who contributed so much to make this a wonderful day at the #flyin2017. Thank you to Brian Dueck and those that helped with organizing the event and making this a reality! You guys rock!
|Amazing day at the fly in today with a record turnout! We had over 2000 people show up for the airshow! Brian was elected president of AOPA Belize and he flew nearly 6 hours between entertaining the audience and giving rides! The skydivers were very popular and were going non stop throughout the day. Overall it was a blast and can't wait for the next one!!!|
Also a big thanks to Skydive San Pedro the who kept the people jumping of from a plane. Please visit them at their facebook page today. Airplanes arrived at 10 A.M. although the entertainment and planned events didn't start until after 12:30 P.M. People still came out early to watch the Skydivers coming down from the Sky. RIDES! Astrum Helicopters was to show up at the event. But, Sadly at the last minute they cancelled out. They where offer rides for sale on location, for you and your loved one could have gone for a flight over the country side.
SKYDIVING! San Pedro Skydivers where on site to give customers a best skydiving above, and while you where up there the view from mountain view was a moment you wouldn't forget. We had a professional skydiving team that performed for everyone to enjoy. And, if you wish to jump of the sky at San Pedro Ambergris Caye contact San Pedro Sky Divers page on Facebook.

Many locals where waiting to this event. And, you could have seen a lot of aerobatics show, see skydivers jumping from planes, look at dozens of different airplanes, helicopter, and cropdusters, enjoy RC planes as they zoom and spin through air, and enjoy good food as pilots test their abilities in their aircrafts?
